The peloton of the Tour de France has no time to enjoy the beautiful valleys and mountains of the central Pyrenees, or its authentic villages, and great places to stay with interesting regional cuisine. This often visited location of Le tour will see you share their cycling challenges but travelling at our own pace, then we are able to relax each evening in a way they can only dream of. If you love cycling and you love a challenge, but are not superhuman, this is the experiance for you - and one you will remember for all the best reasons.
